Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised Mason Greenwood’s impressive lockdown body transformation.
Prior to the hiatus, the striker had scored 12 goals in all competitions in a breakthrough season at Old Trafford.
The Athletic say Greenwood has added 3kg of muscle in his biceps, triceps, and quads while football was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
And Solskjaer has been very impressed with Greenwood’s commendable work ethic.
“Mason is a young boy. He’s still 18 and this lockdown period has done him all the good in the world.
“At his age, they do develop and fill out and Mason’s looking more and more like a man, so definitely it will help him.
“Sometimes early on you could see he was a kid.
“Now in training he can use his strength better and he has done really well over the three or four weeks we have been training now.
“And his quality in front of goal has always been there and now he has muscle to push defenders away.”
United are fighting for silverware with an FA Cup quarter-final on the horizon, while they hold a 5-0 Europa League last-16 first leg lead over LASK.
And in the Premier League, Solskjaer’s men are three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea with nine games to play.
